Andrea Daniels sees a lot of aspects to like about "The Thread That Runs So True," Ragged Edge Community Theater's season opener. For starters, being a teacher herself, she appreciates what the drama has to say.
"I like the plot," Daniels says. "That no matter who you are or where you come from, you deserve the right to a better life. That education in this day and age is the way to make that life better.
"I guess, being an educator myself, I believe that we all can learn and have the right to learn."
Although it is a drama, Daniels says the play features comedic relieve throughout the story.
"The Thread That Runs So True" is the story of Jesse Stuart and the folks of Greenup County, Daniels says.
"This story takes place when Jesse was first becoming a teacher, and the (challenges) he had to overcome to make the people of Lonesome Valley understand the importance of education," she explains. "He would not give up the fight, no matter how hard times became for him."
